We’ve got a round up of candids, including Karrueche Tran and Victor Cruz, Ne-Yo & Crystal Smith, Thomas Q. Jones and Blac Chyna. See what they were up to inside…
New love always puts a glow on the happy in love couple.
Karrueche Tran and Victor Cruz took their relationship to another level by making their red carpet debut together. The couple starting dating around Thanksgiving last year. Since then, they’ve been all boo’d up on Instagram while on BAEcay and have hit up a few parties together, but this is the first time they’ve made an appearance on an official red carpet as a couple.
Last night, the “Claws” actress stepped out with her NFL beau to attend the Sports Illustrated Fashionable 50 list event that went down in West Hollywood. And as you can see, these two are smitten.
Victor is a fashion lover and Kae started as an assistant to a celeb stylist, so it was no surprise to see them hit up a fashion event.
We are HERE for it honey.
It’s a good luck for them both.
On daytime television…
Kae appeared on “The Talk” to chat about beating actor Deon Cole on a recent episode of “Lip Sync Battle.” She chose the perfect song too. The “Claws” actress performed “The Talk” co-host Eve’s hit song “Let Me Blow Your Mind.”
“That was very nerve-wracking because I’ve never performed on a stage,” Kae told the ladies about her performance. “I am not musically talented at all. I can’t sing, I can’t dance. I got two left feet.”
“You look good. Your swag was everything. It was great,” Eve said weighing in on the performance.
“I had to channel my inner-Eve!,” Kae replied.
Peep the clip above.
Catch Kae in a new episode of “Claws” this Sunday at 9/8c on TNT.

In celebs give back news, the “World of Dance” judge recently did a good deed by helping a homeless student, Max Johnson, become a software engineer.
According to Black Enterprise:
Johnson had a rough upbringing, being shuttled between Nigeria and the streets of Camden, New Jersey. In addition to his external environment, Johnson battled autoimmune deficiency illnesses that impacted both his mobility and the way his brain functioned. After attempting to go to college, Johnson quickly found that it wasn’t a fit for him.
When he came across the Holberton School he decided to give it a shot, knowing that he would not have to pay tuition unless he was hired as a software engineer. Although this was a great catalyst for his entry, Johnson did not have enough money saved up to afford a place in San Francisco, which resulted in him sleeping in his car.
When the school found out, they turned to Scality to help raise funds to secure Johnson a place to live. School trustee and investor Ne-Yo heard about the situation and personally took an interest in Johnson’s story and success.
Johnson has since landed a new job as a software engineer at J. Crew in New York City.
Oh, hey zaddy!
NFLer-turned-actor Thomas Q. Jones is currently on the promo trail for the new season of “Luke Cage” that just dropped on Netflix. He stars as Darius Jones/Comanche in the hit Marvel series. And he kills it.
The hottie stopped by AOL Build to chat about his role in the new season.

On the party scene…
Blac Chyna stepped out for the first time since her boyfriend/ex-boyfriend drama on social media.
The LASH Boutique owner served up summertime vibes in a bronze satin plunging neckline Fashion Nova wrap dress to party it up at DailyMailTV’s summer party at LA’s hottest new bar and lounge TomTom.
As she made her way down the carpet, she stopped to snap it up with the Daily Mail’s own Alicia Quarles.
As for her love life, we’re not sure what’s going on.
First it was reported she broke up with 18-year-old aspiring rapper YBN Almighty Jay and was currently dating 19-year-old boxer Devin Haney. However, not too long after news broke that she was dating the boxer, she hopped on Instagram and posted a picture of YBN Almighty with the caption, “Fuck, I’m in love. Thanks @ybnalmightyjay.”
So, who knows what the mom-of-two is doing. And at this point, do we still care?
